Dear Experts,

I would like to remove share by VBA code, so the same which would be done through menu Tools/Share Workbook and removing the flag in section "All changes by more than one user..."

The macro record would do this with a single line

    ActiveWorkbook.ExclusiveAccess

but the problem it brings error message if the file is not shared originally.

Could you please advise how a check could be before this line whether the workbook is shared or not?

thanks,

On Error Resume Next
ActiveWorkbook.ExclusiveAccess
On Error GoTo 0

If you want to do a proper check then use this

If ActiveWorkbook.MultiUserEditing Then
    ActiveWorkbook.ExclusiveAccess
End If
